    Need help ASAP getting my music from my Mkz 2012

    He didn't say that. He said "put in a CD and rip it directly into the jukebox," which is how you record into the jukebox in the first place. You might also proofread your posts, as it's a little difficult to figure out exactly what you're saying. It's quite simple. You insert a CD and just hit the 'Record' button that appears on the screen.

    They eliminated the jukebox feature. Your new MKS won't have it. So it's a moot point.

    Lincoln Approves Establishment of Lincoln MKZ Club!

    My other club has had the URL in its logo since 2001. We want people to look it up.

    Steeda CAI/tune?

    You'd be better off going over to the Ford Fusion Forum and doing a search. The 2010-2012 Fusion Sport has the same powertrain as the MKZ and some members there have done these modifications. You can read their opinions.

    Lincoln MKZ EcoBoost Owners

    If you're worried about tampering or siphoning, there's little chance of that with the capless inlet system. In order to introduce anything into your fuel tank, they'd first need the special funnel that's included with the car. There's little likelihood of anyone who's looking to cause random mayhem walking around with one of those. WRT to siphoning, modern cars are already difficult to siphon from. Anyone looking do that nowadays just punches a hole in the tank from underneath. You can't really prevent that anyway. Ford sells a locking fuel plug for the capless filler but they don't seem to list one for 2013-2014 MKZ. Ask your dealer if there's any updates on this.

    New 2010 MKZ

    Welcome! The only red available on the 2010 MKZ was Sangria.
  9. I have a 2012 but there shouldn't be that much, if any, difference. At 70mph, the tach reads 2100rpm.

    Potentially high Idle

    None of what you're describing is normal for this car. Cold start RPM is around 1300-1400. This should start to drop after about 30 seconds, depending on ambient temps. There is no sensitivity or jerkiness when cold. It drives the same way cold or warmed up. The other sounds you've described upon engaging Drive or Reverse don't reflect anything I've experienced in my car(s). I had a 2010 MKZ prior to this 2012. All of this may or may not be related to the accident. Just be aware that if the dealer determines that the car's maladies are a direct result of the accident, they will not make repairs under the factory warranty. The warranty specifically excludes damages caused by collision. At the same time, if the problems are due to the accident, your insurance company is obligated by law to restore the car to its original condition as it came from the factory. In that case, you'd have to take it up with your insurer and the shop that repaired your car. Good luck and let us know how you make out.

    Lincoln MKZ Favorite Color?

    I haven't seen the the new colors in person yet, but I really like the new MKZ in Ruby Red.

    Its cold

    The cabin in Ford hybrids is heated the same way as in conventional cars. IOW, with heat from the ICE and a heater core. This is one of the reasons fuel economy suffers in cold temps. The ICE has to run for greater periods of time to supply heat for the passenger compartment. Ask.com:

    New Member - Now an MKZ Owner

    Welcome. I had 3 Lincoln LSes, a 2000, 2003 and 2006. If they were still making them I'd have a fourth right now.

    Hybrid Recall

    Dual Climate Control Issue

    This most frequent cause for this in these cars is sticking or failure of the passenger side blend door actuator. Replacement isn't that difficult but it does require removal of the passenger side air bag module. Therefore, if you aren't up to this task, I'd take jgeorg's advice and take the car to a dealer or competent mechanic. Presumably, your car is no longer covered under the 4/50 warranty. If it is, it's a no-brainer. You could first try lowering the ACC temp all the way down and then back up and see if this helps.

    This is the 2010 MKZ Sport Appearance Package (code14s): While it doesn't say so above, there were only two interior colors available on the 2010 Sport: Steel Gray and Dark Charcoal. The seats were trimmed with Cashmere piping and stripes down the middle of the cushions. Can be seen here. I had a 2010 Sport AWD and now have a 2012 Sport AWD. When they were blowing out the 2012s, they offered me a pull-ahead deal on my lease that was too good to pass up. The Sport package transforms the car. It's very enjoyable to drive and that's saying something after the the Lincoln LSes I had previously.

    Welcome. Which model do you have? Standard or Sport? AWD?

    Car sales sometimes tend to be regional. I've seen 3 or 4 in the past week around here. Year over year MKZ sales are up despite the launch problems which resulted in almost no deliveries in January and Februrary. Total sales for 2013 will still probably set a record.

    Badge Removal

    Welcome to the MKZ forum. The letters are attached with adhesive tape so those can be removed with heat and dental floss or monofilament fishing line. IDK how the Lincoln star is attached but if you remove the trunk lining you'll probably be able to see if studs are used on that part. BTW, I realize that you're new here but please don't double post.

    Welcome. I remember you from LLSOC where I'm still a member.
  23. I don't have the CAI. I was just posting the link for you. However, by clicking on the picture and enlarging it, it sure looks like it has the MAF port. Howe else would it work?
